Despite her urgent pleas to "Momma... Daddy... Dowa (Dora)... Elbo (Elmo)..." as she endured her most recent ear exam, nobody could rescue sweet Addison from her 7th ear infection (and 3rd double) of her short life.
Her vicious cycle: Start working on a new tooth (of which she now has a whopping total of 6); drool; drool some more; runny nose; runny nose some more; ear infection. Her sweet little eustachian tubes cannot drain her excess fluid.
So we've been referred. I've made a tentative appointment in 3 weeks, and we wait and see how these ears heal up this go around. In the meantime, say a prayer for little Pilly... and her momma who's trying not to be afraid of tubes.
